Great show, whole 2nd set is wonderful.
Subject: The Mighty Quinn
The Second set for this show was amazing both musically and just cosmic in nature. That may sound corny all these years later but Wow was the band on.
The Foolish Heart expands a little from Spac as Jerry joins in with the Brent's piano. Almost sounds like an Allman brothers jam circa the Brothers and Sisters era.
I am pretty sure this was my favorite Quinn the Eskimo. It was the right song played at just the right time.
We took the back roads out of Maine which turned out pretty good. "Spent a little time on the Mountain, Spent a little time on the hill"

Subject: Phil carpet bombs the Speedway.
Jerry and Phil feeling nimble, they open the set with a spot on Crazy Fingers that transitions directly into the band's theme. The PITB jam sets off with a Phil solo. Jerry takes over, Phil maintaining a prominent role. Jerry puts much gain on his axe and it's off with heads in the audience. The jam later takes a more exploratory turn which finds its way naturally into powerful UJB. The fun isn't over, as the familiar intro chords of Terrapin emerge from the end of UJB. 88 was a great year for Weir, and this TS is an example. To recover from his flub, Jerry adds the gain back to the jam, and all is forgiven. The electric drums and Phil push the tempo, allow Brent and Jerry to fully satisfy. Massive, reverb Phil bombs toward the end make this not to be missed.
A well rounded Wheel pulls us out of space, followed by the welcoming intro of Gimme Some Lovin, where Jerry gets a bit of a rest and let's be honest, Phil has earned this. No rest for the weary lasts long, as they move into a Jerry showcase in Watchtower, which is quite psychedelic! The Dew does not disappoint either, considering Jerry has been heavy on the gain all night, and Phil dropping bombs. Sugar mags sends out the set with the same energy, and a fun Quinn fulfills encore aspirations.
Despite a couple of fledgling songs to end the set, they did a great job of keeping the energy high in the 1st. The 2nd set goes from graceful to powerful and back again several times. I was down on this show for a while, and that was silly of me.
A+, good levels and no discernible hiss
Subject: a heady scene
First set takes us through a series of very strong numbers; love the ending part of the set when they boldly try out a few of their newer tunes - Brent, Bobby, and Jerry all sincerely give it a go. These songs are, by now, canon; at the time I've no doubt the audience was confusingly thrilled.
Second set is a long, sprawling, occasionally very powerful suite...some highlights:
* Jerry teasing the wah-wah on Playin' - man, he s should have gone for it!
* A **really** thrilling conclusion to the big UJB jam, before the final verse!
* Equally exciting is that run through Terrapin; Lady with a Fan is rough going, but the boys, when they get to that big ol' train station, really deliver some downright scary music! Check Mickey picking up the queue with those 'train engine'-electro devil-drums at work!
* Watchtower seethes, and Morning Dew has some great vocal work from Jerry....he really reaches here.
BTW, want to relive that ultra-cool Little Feat opening set? Here ya go! - http://archive.org/details/lf1988-07-02.aud.flac16

The whole show is uniformly solid - not a bad song here . New ones not ready to stretch their wings yet , but again finding that groove and pleasing . Classic stage banter involving PL , BW & JG . Crazy fingers is gently out of the gate in frame two . In the Maine gloaming Crazy Fingers > PITB was an inspired choice . The rest of the night was a whirl of light . That was a real good time . Best of '88 for me .
